What are your favourite fonts? Least favourites? Can you think of any weird/amusing fonts?



Personally I like really small Verdana.

Everyone seems to hate Comic Sans. What's your stance?

Times New Roman sux

Arial is probably my fave

I just use the default font (Verdana?) most of the time though [I quite like the default Buzzjack font anyway], except when said font is Times New Roman (I HATE that font)

also Century Gothic looks quite nice in size 3-5

I die from secondhand cringe whenever someone uses Comic Sans in emails.

Verdana is lovely but Century Gothic is my fave! Although, the Century Gothic on here doesn't seem to work for me anymore? sad.gif (Seems to be "Times New Roman"!)

Funky fonts that you'd find in PowerPoint get my vote.

My degree was basically all about fonts, I did my dissertation on them and have designed a few of my own :')

Can't beat a good old Caslon for me ❤️ Baskerville is another classic.
As for more recent typefaces, Jeremy Tankard is a fave type designer of mine.

this is my kind of thread.

I like simplistic, rounded fonts, Arial MT Rounded is my go to but it's not always an option sad.gif Can't be doing with serifs though sleep.gif

Comic Papyrus though mellow.gif

nothing bad about comic sans its actually quite intellectual if you think of it in a postmodern, posthipster, postrock, postpretentiousness sort of way, not all inferior works of art and embarassing child's party invitations

I love the aesthetic of Verdana though, best font out of the standard ones

Arial is the inferior cousin of Helvetica and I resent it for this

This reminds me of essays and so I have bad memories of it yet I still have to use it

retro

really? we have this?

Calibri is nice and casual, I enjoy how it's now the default on Word.

All random fonts are welcomed, I like individuality.
